Riding up to Monte Senario on My Day Off
Today on my day off, I pedaled north to my my favorite place, Monte Senario. A completely traffic-free ride to a peaceful, spiritual place that feels like a ride to heaven. Rolling hills lead to a steep climb that ends up in a pine forest, and then like a spectacle, the monastery appears in front of you, peacefully detached from the world. The photos show the ride as it develops from Florence, through Fiesole, Bvigliano and then Monte Senario. The Lamborghini was right in front of me as I arrived back in Florence, welcoming me back to reality!
